Criminal Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale Wins Appeal to Reduce Sentence
the intent to distribute cocaine, and two counts of aiding and abetting possession with the intent to distribute cocaine. Allegedly, nine baggage handlers at the Cyril E. King International Airport on the island of St. Thomas facilitated the distribution of nearly 100 kilograms of cocaine to the mainland of the United States. Supposedly, Dorival was found to be the lead facilitator within the conspiracy. He allegedly received numerous kilograms of cocaine from a Maleek Sylvester and directed the other baggage handlers in the smuggling of suitcases containing cocaine. Legitimate flight tags were then obtained from previously checked baggage and affixed to the suitcases containing cocaine. The court found that Dorival, as the lead baggage handler, was ultimately responsible for bringing the suitcases through the airport and onboard an airplane.
